There are many potential things that can go wrong when recording title, and these errors can have a huge impact on future property owners. In this article, we are going to discuss some of the common errors we see during the title recording process.

Inaccurate Legal Descriptions

Inaccurate legal descriptions are perhaps the most common errors we see in the real of title recording. If legal descriptions are inaccurate, incomplete, or missing, they will likely be rejected by the county recorder. This underlines the importance of thoroughly reviewing the legal descriptions and comparing them to the prior recorded documents to ensure everything is in order.

Incorrect Tax Calculations

If the mortgage or deed tax on the property is incorrectly calculated, it can lead to recording issues. Pay attention to these details and make sure these calculations are correct. It’s also important to verify which county you need to submit your documentation to, especially if your city sits on the border of two counties. Make sure to verify this information before submitting your documents.

Missing or Inaccurate Marital Status

In Minnesota, non-title spouses have certain real estate rights that need to be addressed when dealing with title insurance. That’s why it’s important to list the accurate and up-to-date marital status of the granter. When there is missing or conflicting information regarding marital status, it can lead to issues.
